AP® Statistics

AP® Statistics

All of our tutors are experienced teachers at highly regarded, competitive schools, who have taught their subjects extensively and have received excellent student evaluations throughout their careers.

Some Basics:

AP Statistics teaches students how to calculate and interpret probability, apply statistics to real world problems, and design experiments and studies. The course is the equivalent of a traditional social science statistics course in college. This course can be “harder” than a traditional math course because it emphasizes reading comprehension, analytical writing, data analysis, and clear and concise explanations – all at once!

Topics usually covered include:

  • Density curves
  • z, t, and chi-square tests
  • Law of large numbers and Central Limit Theorem
  • Regression
  • Discrete and continuous distributions

Typical problem areas include:

  • What is R-squared and how do I interpret it?
  • How do I know if two events are independent? When do I add probabilities versus multiply them?
  • How can I use my graphing calculator to simulate a chance event?
  • How large of an N do I have to choose?
  • How do I know when to pool two events?

How can we help you?

During our many years of classroom experience teaching AP Statistics, we have seen every imaginable difficulty that a student might encounter. Working with one of our teachers over a high definition video/interactive whiteboard connection, we can take you through the difficult areas, step by step.
